He was born in Cotulla, Texas, son of Alfredo Segovia, Sr. of Cotulla, Texas and Esther Sheely of San Antonio. Fred moved to San Antonio at a young age and lived here for the remainder of his life.

He developed new testing procedures for the electrical systems that streamlined and improved critical processes. In that capacity, he traveled across the country to various Air Force bases to train teams in his new methodology. Fred retired in January 1978 and began a successful venture in renovating and selling homes. He and Bebe worked as a team and enjoyed seeing the fruits of their labor. Fred was the rock and glue of not only his family but of his extended family members and friends. He was devoted to his four grandchildren and thirteen great grandchildren.
